Becker, of the Engineer Corps, and the artist who accompanies him, Mr. May bridgej have, since their arrival, boon actively engaged in taking views and sketches of the topography of the lava-beds. Mr. Maybridge has taken in all fifty remarkable views. The Modoc squaws who were taken prisoners at the first battle in the lava-beds, on April 15, 16, and 17, were forwarded yesterday, by 0. C. Applegate, to the Yainox reservation. Lava-Beds, May B.—Batteries 0, G, H,A,and a detachment of Battery A, Fourth Artillery, now near the stronghold, ore ordered to report at these headquarters. Capt. Heabrouck’s Light Battery B, Fourth Artillery, remain at the depot on the southeast comer of Tula Lake.- The in fantry is to occupy positions in* the vicinity of the stronghold. All the wounded convalescent will bo removed to-day and placed en route for Fort Klftmuth, under charge of Assistant Surgeon Maldeny. Acting Assistant Surgeon B. Semig is progressing very favorably under his wounds. Private Penham,' Company G, Twelfth Infantry, died on the even ing of the 6th, in hospital, from the effects of wounds received on the 26th ult. The following memorandum has just been re ceived: Headquabtebs Depabtmznt op the Co lumbia, Pobtlakd, April 25.— That timely infor mation may reach the headquarters of any un usual movement or hostile demonstrations on the part of the Indians, until farther orders the commanding officers of Forts Colville, Lapwai, and Klamath, and Camps Harney and Warner, will forward reports weekly, and oftener should - circumstances render it necessary, to the Assist ant Adjutant General, if there bo any changes in the attitude towards the Government by the Indians in their vicinity. (Signed) H. Clatwood, A. A.’General. Lava-Beds, May 8—4:15 p. m.—The day before yesterday, two squaws who lived on Fairchild’s rauche, One-Eyed Dixie and Artena-Chokes were sent out by him, through instruc tions from Gen. Davis, to reconnoitre the position held by the Modoca at the time - of *the attack on Capt. Thomas, to report on their strength, and to ascertain if possible whether they received reinforcements. The squaws returned yesterday, having been ac cordingly eighteen hours without water. They saw no Modoca, their idea being that Capt. Jock had. left for some other point where water is obtained. On receipt of thin informa tion the Warm Spring Indians, under Donald McKay, were ordered out with instructions to push forward to the point above alluded to, and discover the Modocfi. The large fires men tioned in the foregoing were signals from Capt. McKay that the Modoca had vacated their forti fications and had gone to .some other point not definable just now. On tlio observation of the ' fire signals orders immediately issued for Haa bouck Y a Light Battery B, of the • Fourth Artillery, and all the available cavalry on the other side of the beds, also the Warm Spring Indians, to be.ready to leave Mason’s camp early to-morrow morning for the purpose of scouring the lava beds cast and southeast of Tulo Lake, so that the Modoca may be found should they have secreted themselves. The troops ordered to move will carry five days’ ra tions. The above order necessarily counter manded that by which the cavalry and artillery were ordered to this camp, which has been re ferred to. The indications now are that the Modoca are entirely out of the beds, but in what direction they have gone or whether they are gone singly, in small bands or en masse, it is impossible to surmise. The Warm Springs are reported to have found the bodies of Lient. Cranston and three of our soldiers. They also found two dead Modoca in the vicinity first mentioned. A portion of the command go out to-morrow for the purpose of bringing in the bodies of Lient. Cranston and those who died with him on the field. WOVEN WIRE IATTBESS CO, 286 State-st., CHICAGO, ILL.

IS all—XUo Festival a Success music ally and Financially—A Deserved Tribute to .the Indomitable Organ izer and Leader o( tbo Affair. Special Dispatch to The Chicago Tribune. Cntorasixi, 6., May 9.—The great musical festival is virtually at an end. The. incessant rains of the past two days, and the drenching storms of to-day, have rendered it impossible to give the open air musical fete, and so, in place of it, a concert will be given in the Exposition Hall to-morrow afternoon, and a ball in the evening; The programme for the concert has been extemporized from the week’s music, so that no novelty will attach to it. The chorus has .also dwindled down, so that only light music can be performed. Financially, the festival has been so far a success that no assessments will be made npon the guaranty fund. Of its musical success there can be but one opinion. With the exception, perhaps, of . the New York festival, last week, it is the grand est musical event which has ever taken place in America, and it is in"tho highest degree credita ble to Cincinnati, not only that it should have furnished a chorus which in quality even sur passes the Handel and Haydn Society, but that it should have carried through and supported the festival in such a handsome manner. The New York and the Cincinnati festivals, both of which owe their success to Mr. Thomas, are the first well-considered and legitimate steps towards elevating the musical standard in this country by popularizing the : works of the best composers. Compared with the two Boston this festival lacked in numbers, in noise, in glitter, in the fascinating spectacle of a great crowd, in the blowing of trumpets, marching of processions, and in that barbaric sensationalism which pleases ear, but leaves no sign after the glitter of the big show has' faded away. It were useless to deny that there were many things in both the Boston Jubilees which. had a passing musical value, and a few which will be long remembered by those who were there; bnt they added nothing to mnsic in their general re sults. When the ripples subsided, the stream went flowing on as it did before. It is already plain to see that this festival is bound to exert a mighty influence upon the mu- THE MODOC WAR. A Government Supply Train Surprised by tbe Red-Skins. Later Advices State the Indians Have Deserted the Lava-Beds, Movements of the Troops—lte connoissance Ordered. - Lava-Beds, May 7, via Ybeka, May 9.—The Modoca made a sortie to-day on a train return ing to camp, on what is known as tho Island, whither the quartermaster and other stores have been removed from the former depot at the CINCINNATI. fllcal character of the West. After such perform ances, no memory remains of the unwieldy Bos ton multitude, of the noise of artillery and anvils, of the harlequinades of Strauss or .the clash . and clang of Panins' and Saro’a men. There are two causes which have combined to produce this great success. The ono lies in the stem disci pline which Mr. Thomas has employed; the other in the character of the music which has been performed. Mr. Thomas has been a musi cal Cesar f rom the start, and has exercised hie functions with an arbitrary and imperious will, which admitted of no alternative but obedience; and ho has been as true as steel to the cause of music. He has never been a doubting Thomas, even when the sky looked the black est ; baa never abated the fraction of a hair, even when it seemed *as if financial failure must be the result. When ho was first approached on the subject of giving the festival, the only stipulation which ho made was that lie should have nothing to do with the ex ecutive business, but that of every musical de tail, even the smallest, he should have ahsolnte control. He has exorcised that control with a royal determination, which has now and then been sorely trying to Cincinnati pride. The choral forces were at first placed under & local drill-master for rehearsal. A few weeks after, Mr. Thomas made a visit to Cin cinnati to • sco what progress his singers were making, and found them leading the conductor instead of being led by him. Ho

at onco disposed of him; went to New York and sent' out Otto* Singer, a most accomplished musician and rigid disciplinarian. He brought order out of the chaos. He inspired them with enthusiasm, and by almost incessant work with, them day and night of the moat fatiguing kind he mode the festival a possibility. It must bo remembered that this chorus is composed of rural societies, to. whom the music was new, and that the muslo is also extremely difficult. Tho choruses from the “Bettiugcn Te Beam,” tho Ninth Symphony, the “ Walpurgis Night,” and “Orpheus,” are simply gigantic, and that these crude societies of bucolic singers should not only have mastered their intricacies, but should have been able to deliver them with such fine precision and nicety of expression; and with such indomitable zeal after so many weeks of wearing toil by day and night, seems well-nigh a miracle. To have conquered the choruses of any one of these works was a greater task than all the choruses of tho last Boston festival combined. The labor * of the orchestra has been fully • as arduous, notwithstanding th© excellence and skill of Thomas* men, who comprise one-balf the players, and some of their most difficult numbers have had to be played after a whole morning’s rehearsal and an after noon concert, but they have done their work with superb finish. The matinee to-day was well attended, not withstanding tho dreadful weather. Tho pro , gramme was tho best yet given, but its perform ance was at times badly marred by tho perform ance of the elements outside. In one instance the effect was sublime. This was in the performance of the Leonora” over ture, which was given with a thunder accompaniment. During tho rest which follows the tnimpot peal the thunder rumbled in as perfectly in time and keeping with tho senti ment of the overture as if Beethoven had scored the part for an army of double basses, and all through the work its peals made a splendid back ground. The best features of the matinee were Ru- dolphson’a excellent singing of the aria, “ 0,- Lord have Mercy,” from Mendelssohn’s “St. Paul: ” the exquisite andante and scherzo from Schubert's symphony in C ; the “ Kaiser March,” in which the choral was taken with tremendous power by the basses, especially the strings; Mies Cary’s singing of the Page’s Song in “The Huguenots,” and the “Tell" overture. After the concert was over, the New York drillmaster was called into the chorus-room by the chorus, and presented with an elegant watch and chain, as a testimonial of their esteem, and a souvenir of the festival. The evening concert was attended by over 6,000 people. Every available inch of standing room was o&upied, and the enthusiasm was un bounded. . The chorus was not quite so large as on former nights, but was still very effective. The performance opened with the vorepiel to the •* Meisteraamgcr,” the intensely dramatic passages of which word brought out with immense force. Although a great success with the musicians, who are curi ous in studying effects, still it can hardly be said to have made a very deep impres sion upon the audience, although it was heartily applauded, as the Cincinnatians are resolved to be pleased with everything. The second number Was Schubert’s “ Twenty-third Psalm,” which is written for female voices, only it is not a piece very well adapted for a large building and an audience like this, as its harmonies are very close, and some of its finest points are lost; but it affords an opportunity to test the quality of the sopranos and altog, and ‘they stood the tost. In freshness, richness and re finement there is no other chorus in this country to equal them. One year of drilling would place them above all others in every respect. The third number was Beethoven's great aria, “the Ah! Perfido.” which was sung by Mrs. Dexter. It Is in reality the first time that her voice and gen eral ability have been thoroughly tested, and it is only truth to say that she did not stand the test. She has not the method or the calibre to sing such a great dramatic air, and in addition to this she developed a constant tremolo in the voice whichmust be fatal to any important effort. The total result of her sing ing in the festival has only shown that she is a good society singer, with a*high soprano voice of good quality and moderate power. She is far from being an artist, with all her vocal abilities, which are above the amateur average. The first port of the programme closed with Liszt's “Tasso,”- tho lament and triumph of which, as expressed by the orchestra, were a graphic tone-picture.. The tremendous power of be basses and donblo bassos, and the clearness and emphasis of the violins and ’cejlos, told with splendid effect, and some of the chords were fairly startling. After the “ Tasetf,” Judge Matthews took the stage, and, after a brief allusion to the remarka ble success which had resulted in every detail of the festival, he read an appeal, signed by numer ous citizens, to the Executive Committee, asking that this festival bo made an annual event here after, which was greeted with enthusiastic ap plause. The Judge then put the matter to vote, and it was carried.by a tremendous “ aye.” George Ward Nichols, Esq., the President of the festival, then made a few remarks in the Convention, of which be tendered the thanks of the Committee to all who had participated in the festival. Theodore Thomas was then loudly called for, and, npon making bis appearance, received an enthusiastic ovation. In one respect Thomas resembles President Grant. His speech was very short, and was as follows: “If I had the ability to speak I should have a great deal to say.” The concert closed with the “'Walpurgis Night,” and the “Hallelnjiah Chorus,” Miss Cary, and Messrs. Bndolpbsen, Whitney, and Varley taking the solos in the former. Its per formance was an excellent one. and the chorus, as usual, acquitted itself admirably in their highly dramatic numbers. The great festival, which now closes, has been a great success. Other festivals will follow it.. Chicago must prepare herself for one some time. War Department Weather Pzognastl- cations.

Speculations Concerning tbe Sncces' sion to the Chief Jus ticeship. Number and Condition of the Exist- ing Gold Banks. Large Increase of Revenue from the Tax on Cigars. Special Dtepateh to The Chicago Trihunt * THE SUCCESSION TO THE CHIEF JUSTICESHIP. Washington, D. C., May 9.—The great tdpio of comment, both hero and in legal circles gen erally throughout the country, is tbe nomination of a successor to Chief Justice Chase. If ibis vacancy bod occurred one year . ago, there is no doubt but that the President would have made his selection from the United States Senate. There were then three Senators who vied with each other for a place on the Supreme Bench. These were Cockling,- Howe, and Edmunds. The terms of two of these Senators, Howe and Cobbling, were then on the point of expiration. Bo far as Cockling was concerned, he had no hopes of being returned. In the election then about to ensue New York was regarded hopeless ly Democratic, by a at least 50,000, and Conkling’a ambition for public life Bought refuge in a position on the Supreme Bench, even in the capacity of an Associate Jus tice. Senator Howe was nearly in the- same posi tion. Tho threatened German revolt from the Republican - party in Wisconsin was regarded as strong enough to elect a Democratic Legislature which would return a Senator from that State, and Mr. Howe labored to escape from the ob scurity pf private life by also intriguing for a Supreme Bench position. On the San Domingo question, at one time,* he was counted in tho op position to this Administration scheme, along with Trumbull, Schurz, Ferry, of Connecticut, and Sumner. When the movement was made in caucus to depose Sumner from the Chair manship of the * Committee on Foreign Relations, Howo gave Sumner to under stand that' he would never vote for or support in any way such a contemptible scheme. His subsequent action as Chairman of the Can ons Committee which performed the disreputa ble act, and his coarse on San Domingo annex ation, were as much of a surprise to all who witnessed them as was that which was felt when Logan repudiated his Liberal associates in the Senate last spring,-and came out in a violent speech in favor of Grant's renomination at Philadelphia. His whole political course for two years has been actuated by a desire to clothe himself with the political ermine by ex cessive obsequiousness to tbe Executive. By reason of the action of the Senate increasing tho salaries of the Judges of the Supreme Court one year ago.aU three oi the Senators afcthat time wore disqualified from receiving this judicial appoint ment by reason of tho constitutional provision which prohibits the appointment of men to office, tho salaries of which may have been increased during their respective terms. Edmunds is still disqualified by this provision, as the time fdr which he was elected, and during which he votod for such increase, nas not yet Expired. Conkling and Howe have enteredupon new terms, however, and, in contemplation of law, escape the constitutional restriction in this direction. So far as Conkling is concerned, haying just been re-elected for a term of six years com mencing from the ith of March last, it is doubt ful if he now wishes the position. This long lease of political life has given him an ambition for the Presidency, and, in. common with seroral Eastern politicians, who believe that the President must come from the East in 1876. he believes that ho is the miin. Besides, when Judge Grier died, that vacancy was filled by the appointment, of Ward Hunt, an uncle of ’ Conklmg’s, and a citizen of New York, which latter fact in itself, by reason of locality, would make a selection of Conkling impracticable. So far as Howe is concerned, be wonld like nothing better than this appointment. He has a strong influence to' back him. His colleague, Senator Carpenter, is in favor of Howe, because that would create an immediate vacancy in the ’Senate, which would be filled by Gov. Washburn, of Wisconsin, who is now an uncomfortable com petitor for Carpenter's place in 1875. The South has a programme of its own to fill the vacancy. Politicians from that section urge that the President make Associate Justice Miller Chief Justice,* and then assign some representa tive Southern Republican like Judge Settle or ex-Sonator Pool, to the vacancy thereby occa sioned. When the President was in Chicago, he con sulted with several of the leading citizens there with regard to this vacancy. He admitted that it was the most difficult and important appoint ment he bad yet to deal with, and he said ha thought he would take several months to delib erate and consult about the matter. He said that this appointment should not be a political one if he could help it, and that it would not probably be made until just before Congress as sembled. GOLD BANES. There are now in existence.five gold banks, two of which are at San Francisco, one at Stock ton, one at Sacramento, and one at Santa Ba vara, California, the latter having been author ized to-day to organize under the act of 1870, with a capital of SIOO,OOO.

DOUBLE SUICIDE. A Swindling; Beal Estate Operator and Hi« Wife Take .Poison Together* Dzs Moines, lowa, May 9.—-A double suicide occurred four miles from Bonaparte, Tan Buren County, last night. Mr. Bichard Wallingford and his wife, the victims, retired at the usual hour, without anything wrong being noticed by their children About 12 o'clock a eon in an adjoining room heard a noise in his parents room as if some per son was' in pain, and procuring a light he went into the room and found his father and mother dead, lying side by side. The son at onco aroused the neighbors, who hastened to the house to find the report only too true. No marks of violence were found upon their persons. Search was at once made to find some clue to the' mistery, and a note written by Wallingford was found, irT which ha states that he had been impli cated in a number of swindling real estate operations, forging deeds and other Illegal practices. The confession stated that some of these crimes would soon be discovered, and thftt { rather than endure the punishment due. suicide should relieve him. This seemed a sufficient explanation for Wallingford's death, bat did not in any manner explain' the motive for the death of Mrs. Wallingford. She was a woman of ' excel lent character and attainments, . while he was coarse, and dissolute. One opinion is that Wallingford had confessed his crime to his wife, and that suicide was agreed upon between them; another, that he had given his wife poison without her knowledge, and then poisoned himself, and still another, that the wi& had done the poisoning. Several other parties are implicated with him in the criminal transactions referred to, and the tele , graph baa been brought into requisition to effect heir arrest..
